Java, Ahhhhh!

I never drank coffee until I was in my 30s (and that's all I'm prepared to say about my age!). Now, I do... a LOT! So you might say my latest product line came about through necessity.

It's (ta da...) the Coffee Cozy. I've seen others out there, but mine is a little different. It covers the whole cup for one thing, and it's made from at least 50% post-consumer materials. I sized it to fit a Starbucks Venti, but you can turn down the cuff to fit your beverage of choice - on most cozies.

The best part is, it keeps your coffee hot - and your fingers NOT!

My First Blog

I've been designing websites for ten years, but I must confess...this is my first blog. Will it be fun? Will I sound corny? I don't know, but I'm willing to find out if you are.

Hmmm! I guess I should start by introducing myself. I am a Christian, an Army wife, and a homeschooling mother, among other things. Besides designing websites I've worked as a copyeditor in Japan, a real estate agent in South Carolina, and a PartyLite consultant in California. (I'm easily bored, and besides, I move a lot.)

My latest and most exciting venture is The Recycled Jeans Company. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to create things, especially when I can reuse something that's been discarded. As I tell my customers, I hate to see a bad pair of jeans go to waste. Luckily, this is a career I can take with me wherever I go, which is a good thing because I'm moving again in May, to San Antonio this time. Yeah, I've never been there.

I love moving around and seeing new places, but my heart is in Alaska. I'm looking forward to the day my husband retires. I'm going to ski, eat the salmon my husband catches, watch my mountains, and sew... yeah, that's what I'm going to do.
